In our article on Bijuva, the oral fixed-dose combination of estradiol and progesterone (Med Lett Drugs Ther 2019; 61:99), Table 1 should have included single-ingredient oral formulations of estradiol and progesterone (see below). They will be added to the table as it appears online, along with medroxyprogesterone (Provera, and generics), another single-ingredient progestin available for use in women with an intact uterus who take systemic estrogen for menopausal symptoms. Taking generic estradiol and progesterone separately may be less convenient than taking Bijuva, but they cost less and allow for more dosing flexibility.
